Resumo:

This volume tells the story of a feud that erupted within the family of American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) and that still continues today. Making use of letters, diaries, and legal documents, the author reveals the secret behind the poet's insistent seclusion, presenting a woman beyond her time who found love, spirituality, and immortality all on her own terms. In 1882, Emily Dickinson's brother Austin began a passionate love affair with Mabel Todd, a young Amherst faculty wife, setting in motion a series of events that would forever change the lives of the Dickinson family. The feud that erupted as a result has continued for over a century. The author tells the story of the Dickinson family and reveals Emily to be a very different woman from the pale, lovelorn recluse that exists in the popular imagination. The first half is an account of American poet Emily Dickinson's life. The second half deals with the complicated and vicious in-fighting that followed her death.
